Shanghai (Gasgoo)-According to the data released by China Passenger Car Association, China new energy passenger vehicle sales reached 64,931 units in October, up 102% year on year. Compared with last month, the sales volume increased 7,000 units in October, making China new energy passenger vehicle sales to increase month on month for nine consecutive months from the beginning of 2017.
Starting with a sales volume of 5,423 units in January, sales of China new energy passenger vehicles increased month by month. During the ten months, February and March boasted fastest sales growth of 11,000 units. By the end of October, the YTD sales volume of China new energy passenger vehicles increased to 377,260 units.
An insider attributes the continuing sales growth of China new energy passenger vehicles to the fast-growing demand for NEVs in some vehicle purchase restricted cities, punctual release of the NEV subsidy notice and tax exemption notice for vehicle purchase tax as well as carmakers' frequent release of new NEV models.
Taking Changan Automobile as an example, thanks to its Project Shangri-La new energy strategy, October sales of Changan's new energy passenger vehicle soared 1950% to 3,710 units over the previous year, enabling Changan to be the automaker with the fastest sales growth in October.
